The Democratic Socialist Republc of Korinia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Slevinski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.027 billion Korinians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Star City. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Korinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,416 trillion Korinian Dollers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 172,265 Korinian Dollers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, most ambassadors from Korinia retire only a few years after being appointed, and atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korinia's national animal is the Korinian Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korinia is ranked 3,296th in the world and 153rd in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 96.12 on the Human Development Index.
